G'day and welcome to Adelaide Cyclists. I/we hope you get something out of the site. Let me know if there is anything you thing would be good to add, We are hoping for a meet-up of some kind in spring.
You can write forum posts, have a blog, post pictures and videos (and add from YouTube) and create events to invite members to.
I am guessing you know the other recent members from the Fixed group and Bicycle Polo club. I hope you can help spread the word about.
The beer question is to weed out the non-Adelaide people (and spammers).
